(Yet More) Baggage Train

I know I said that my baggage train was complete, but in the words of Sean Connery's Bond reimagining "never say never".

I was searching for a yellow and a red for some new dragoon regiment coat colours. Not being totally convinced I decided to paint some test figures. In my big box of spares I have lots of dragoon horseholders, so they seemed ideal candidates. Cutting a long story short they came out as I wanted them to, but what to do with them? Strangely, I hadn't actually thought about putting them to one side and using them in the new units.

Vapnartak was on the horizon, and Museum Miniatures would be there.  Each baggage train consisted of eight carts: nine carts would be unbalanced, ten would be better.  Another quick rummage through the spares found two more horseholders, four marching musketeers, and two dogs.


New additions to the King's baggage


...and Parliament's baggage

I'm sure you can imagine the rest - two new engineers' wagons (well I do have some engineers, so surely they need some supplies), and two wood sided carts.

Conclusion: I think I have more than enough carts and wagons now. Oh, and I can't paint dogs.
